Can you use Facebook to back your photos up? There's no limit that I know of and thought it may be a sneaky and good idea.  There is a setting to make it for only you to see the photos. Has anyone tried this?

I don't see a problem with it.... It's up to you but in case you didn't know, Flickr has 1TB space for free... 

 

There are many cloud services for photos backup such as Skydrive, etc.

i wouldnt, they lower the quality of the image.

 

i use https://mega.co.nz/ to backup my files, 50Gb free space, but only use it as backup, you never know when they might get blocked or closed down like they did a while back.

Thanks, I think I'll use Skydrive, and maybe Facebook. I'm worried Facebook will notice something unusual and tell me to stop filling their servers up.

Use Flickr. Facebook degrades picture quality. Also, there are services like SkyDrive and DropBox.
